About this talk

Virtual environments are excellent at providing an elastic, scalable environment for a myriad of workloads to thrive. Unfortunately, it's often too easy to over-provision resources or leave discarded and unwanted workloads, fostering a constrained environment due to virtual sprawl. However, did you know that this can also negatively impact the performance and growth of your critical workloads? In this session, you will learn to: - Identify virtual sprawl using advanced technical methods - Dig into performance related issues that can be caused by imbalanced or top heavy provisioning - Understand how to translate real world sprawl data into a solid business case for change - Exercise recommended practices to avoid falling deeper into the virtual sprawl trap
